The project launched by Beeple begins with a selection of five NFTs from Andy Murray’s victory at the 2013 Wimbledon tennis tournament, each of which has a different level of scarcity.
A highlight of WENEW is that it has a concept that resembles NBA Topshot, the famous NFT game in which basketball fans bid for clips of their favorite NBA moments.
According to the official WENEW website, the project has partnered with the Open Earth Foundation in order to:
“Establish practices designed to minimize energy-intensive transactions.”
At the same time it will finance climate initiatives and offset its carbon footprint.
